” …more of a character piece where you might think you’ve got everything figured out time and again … for the plot to take things in an entirely different direction almost immediately – to the point that there is no clear villain in the cast of characters until VERY late. So don’t expect a formula movie here…” Search My Trash

“Once the dark stuff starts happening, the unbelievable behaviour simply becomes inexplicable. I won’t go into detail and spoil it for you but it’s pretty hilarious, as everyone’s acting kicks into overdrive and completely at odds with normal behaviour. It’s actually enjoyable for all the wrong reasons.” UK Horror Scene

Dark Cove has a lot of different issues that could have been tightened up while shooting as well as in post-production. Yet even knowing that this one isn’t a highly polished production with big bucks behind it, I can really respect the fact that everyone involved makes a legit run at creating something special.” Addicted to Horror Movies

“It is really in the scripting, pacing and acting that the flick comes a cropper. I’m all for slow build-ups when necessary, but here it takes over 45 mins for anything to actually happen. Prior to that it’s all unnatural sounding dialogue interspersed with gurning juvenalia and crude attempts at humour.” Flickering Myth

  1. Any word on when they’re gonna release this one? I know that the most recent “set to be released date” was August 2, 2017, yet here we are once again with a horror film’s release date not coming to fruition .. This is happening way more frequently than not with films being shelved for extremely long durations of time..WTF?.. I don’t get it, in that yes, I understand that a film can be completed but not yet have distribution, but with many of these they have received distribution(hence where/when release date is based), yet that date comes and goes with the film still sitting somewhere, stuck on a shelf..?
